Database of Semantic Shifts in languages of the world

The aim of the Database of Semantic shifts is to collect and classify possible semantic shifts in the languages of the world. Semantic shifts theory allows researchers to investigate the semantic derivation of a lexical meaning in different languages.

The project is being developed since 2001 in the Institute of Linguistics in Moscow by a research group under the guidance of Anna A. Zalizniak.
